Configuring and using RDA with OST

Configuring and using RDA with OST

This topic introduces key RDA with OST tasks and provides links to other related topics that contain procedures that describe how to perform these tasks:

Understanding RDA with OST

OpenStorage Technology (OST) provides the logical disk interface that can be used with network storage devices, and the DR Series system appliance requires RDA with OST plug-in software to integrate its data storage operations with supported data management applications (DMAs). For details on the applications supported, see the DR Series System Interoperability Guide.

The DR Series system accesses the OpenStorage API code through the RDA with OST plug-in, which can be installed on the supported media server platform type that you choose (Windows or Linux). When RDA with OST is used with the DR Series system, it offers the following benefits:

Guidelines

For best results, observe the following guidelines for optimal performance with your supported RDA with OST operations with the DR Series system:

Terminology

This topic introduces and briefly defines some basic RDA for OST terminology used throughout the DR Series system documentation.

Term

Description

BE

Veritas DMA, Backup Exec (BE)

DMA/DPA

Data Management Application (also known as Data Protection Application), which are terms for the role played by the backup applications used with RDA with OST; for example, Veritas NetBackup or Backup Exec.

LSU

Logical Storage Unit, which from the DR Series system perspective, represents any container created for data storage. LSU is a common storage term while container is a common term in DR Series systems that represents a location for storing data.

media server

This is the host running the DMA media server and is where the RDA with OST plug-in is installed. The RDA with OST plug-in can also be installed on a client.

NBU

Veritas DMA, NetBackup (NBU)

OST

The OpenStorage Technology from Symantec, which allows storage devices to deliver backup and recovery solutions with NetBackup. RDA with OST uses the OpenStorage API and a plug-in installed on either a Linux or a Windows-based media server platform.
